Scene of some of the most intense fighting during the First War of Independence / Indian Mutiny The Residency offers an oasis of peace in which to reflect on the wrongs inflicted during Britain's early acquisitive capitalist stage and the roots of colonialism.

Nothing much left but still the ruins will give you thrill thinking about those days. Should avail a guided tour instead of going alone.

Only a few locations in India bear histories of both Mughal Era and British India. The Residency is one of them. The Sepoy Mutiny in 1857 among Indian soldiers here, was one of the earliest freedom movement.
